GHR 2015 Q4 Restoration/Rejoice

Dear Friends and Facilitators,

After the beautiful lunar eclipse on September 27th… and a new shift in energy that is emerging…I think the perfect response is to REJOICE! (what else is there to do??) We have reflected, renewed, released and now it’s time. The world needs joy. That is very clear to me. Let each of us keep searching for, and finding, JOY!!

Prayer/Meditation:

As light joins us late and leaves early,
May we make our way deep inside our hearts,
As our animal kin turn to hibernation and renewal,
May we take it slowly and rest abundantly, remembering the season of waiting
and longing with hope and with joy.

May each day remind us to curl up with our memories,
May each night bring us to holy dreams and simple receiving.
And as the light begins its slow ascent,
May winter’s deep embrace strengthen our souls in love.
— Judith Tripp
